    We are purchasing Genie+. We all are loading the Disney app on their iPhone but does everyone need their own account so we can all use Genie+ if our group separates or should everyone Just use my Count. We are a family of five with three teenagers

    Hey there, hi there, Stephanie! Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney with your Disney Genie+ question. 

    As a family with teens as well, I would be happy to share my experience with Disney Genie+ in the parks. I think you've made an excellent choice by planning on utilizing Disney Genie+. Our family is big on attractions, so this really helps you maximize your day and get so much done. Now there is no wrong way to do this. You could all add the Disneyland app to your phones and create your own accounts with your own tickets uploaded to the individual accounts. However, as a family, I would recommend just using one account and linking all five of your tickets to that account.

    Everyone with a phone can download the Disneyland app and log in using that account. I have had no issues having the same account logged on to multiple phones throughout the day. This makes making Disney Genie+ selections a lot easier for any rides you want to do together so you aren't having to try to all get the same Lightning Lane return times from five different accounts. However, you also have the option to just select a few tickets from your party if the whole group doesn't want to ride the same ride. 

    Pro tip: I suggest adding a credit or debit card to your profile in your Disneyland app ahead of time. This will make the check-out process even quicker if you are purchasing Disney Genie+ once you get into the parks.

    The second reason I suggest using one account to manage everyone's tickets and Disney Genie+ is because of my favorite in-app feature, mobile ordering.  Now that you already have a credit card saved, mobile ordering from participating food locations is so easy and time-saving! I also love this because when my kids are doing their own thing in the parks while my husband and I enjoy some appetizers and drinks at Lamplight Lounge, my kids can easily order a snack through the mobile order feature and pick it up. This eliminates my needing to divvy out cash or stand in line with them to purchase a snack for them. I call that a parenting win!

    Stephanie, I hope this helps you figure out what will work best for your family and I hope your upcoming trip to The Happiest Place on Earth is full of magical moments!
